And Paul reminds us that love is not boastful in I Corinthians Of course, there are variations on pride and humility. We might recall examples of false pride and false humility. Some of us may be guilty of a kind of pride by hiding our gifts and refusing to take risks. I wonder about the stories of Esther and Mary in the Bible. Could Esther have thwarted the plot to kill her people if she had denied the power she possessed? Could Mary have birthed and nurtured Jesus if she had refused to use her physical and spiritual gifts? Or Jesus: Could he have accomplished what he did without a keen sense of his own abilities, and the courage to use them?

When I started at New York and found myself writing blog posts, I would compare my originals to the edited pieces to see where I could have done better. My goal was to turn in a perfect article that required little to no editing. I see myself in the kids turned adults who work hard and quietly toil away, finding themselves ignored when it comes to moving to the next step in their careers. Tiger parenting makes it hard to ask for help and even harder to admit defeat in life. I can be my own worst enemy. Self-doubt circulates in my head all the time and I constantly aspire to be more perfect: I could have found better clothes for a shoot, I could have thought up a more creative approach, I could have been funnier, smarter, more clever — the list never ends.
I can blurt things out that echo the harsh way my mom spoke to me as a child without even realizing the weight of my words. It also means I have little patience for people complaining about their circumstances.

Could we live the elusive immigrant dream, but on our own terms? If you asked me 20 years ago how I expected my life trajectory to go, I would have told you college, med school, become a doctor. I am not the rich medical professional my mother hoped for, though I am economically more secure than my parents, and I am able to enjoy life more than she was. Something broke between us when I declared my independence. She still believes I could become a doctor and berates me every so often because she thinks I work too much for too little money.
It could be days or weeks between calls; the longest was two months.
Sui Sin Far’s Mamma
All I could do was turn the other cheek because I knew that therapy, the best way to solve this problem, was not in the picture. It would trigger another blowout, because the last thing my mother wanted was for others to hear our dirty laundry.
I look at my internal monologue and the offhand comments I make to friends, and I see the effects of her parenting. And maybe this self-awareness is how you survive growing up a tiger cub. Already a subscriber? Log in or link your magazine subscription.
